Audition Strategies for College & Graduate School

Auditions to enter undergraduate or graduate school for music is always a harrowing time and experience. Oftentimes, the crucial factor in being accepted or rejected from any school is based upon one’s preparation more so than one’s talent or ability. As a student, performer, and ultimately a music educator, I have experienced and witnessed the successes and failures associated with the audition process. As a result, I have created a master class format to address the most salient issues associated with an audition. Topics to be addressed include:

  • Preparation Prior to the Audition Day
  • How to Proceed on Audition Day
  • Repertoire Requirements for the Audition
  • Audition Committees and Expectations
  • How to Choose the Right School
